long war we launched after 9/11 has been ended in iraq. and all of those variables factor into decisions about how we mark this day as americans. but also how our leaders or our would be leaders mark it. how we commemorate 9/11 is a work in progress. we saw today a decision by the white house and the obama campaign to have vice president joe biden mark the day in a way that was not political. it was just about remembering the people who were lost that day and commemorating the sacrifices people have made in this country because of 9/11. while both sides in the presidential campaign suspended their negative ads for the day out of respect for the anniversary, there's no ban on campaigning today. there's no rule about what you can and cannot do. mitt romney gave a speech today before the national guard association in reno, nevada, and at times it sounded like his normal stump speech. he did go out of his way to attack president obama for defense cuts that are part of the sequester deal. which incidentally, are cuts that paul ryan voted for in congress. that's the kind of thin

president bush. he was in the white house during the 9/11 attacks and the beginning of the world iraq. it's great to have you back here today or i would like to get your perspective on what we're seeing today. >> well, this is a terrible time for the folks in the white house. as well as the intelligence communities and the defense department. my heart and prayers are with them as they make tough decisions. the president's primary responsibility is to protect americans and to make sure america's national security interests are upheld. we also have to remember that we need strong leadership. president obama should be providing strong leadership filled with resolve. he should have the patience of diplomacy, it is very important right now. our diplomats have to be practicing tough diplomacy. this is a time when we and we have to count on our allies standing tall with us. as president bush said, you are either with us or against us. that was a very important message to send around the world. we hope that president obama is sending a similar message. you have to stand with america. we are not a

were very much focused on iraq, but you speak to the critics, and they will say that they -- it did not achieve what they were hoping to achieve. that really to train up the afghan armed forces. it provides a stable environment to a certain extent to allow that transfer of power, that training program to operate, but i'm not exactly quite sure whether or not, don, it's achieved its ultimate goal. in the process this has cost a lot of moy, and do date more than 2,000 u.s. soldiers have died. >> we have heard a lot about those green on blue attacks with the recent uptick in violence. especially those green on blue attacks. is there a timing problem here with the troop departure? >> it's certainly not ideal. you get the impression that everyone wants to get out of here. to tell you the truth, don, when you speak to troops off the record that is what they will definitely tell you. i mean, they've had to -- this was always kind of the plan that president obama boem when he gave the green light for this surge back in 2009, he said those 33,000 troops, they will be leaving come september 2
hard to get this dofnlt i hope we can confirm our ambassadors to iraq and afghanistan, and the continuing resolution to fund the government for six months. republicans say this congress has been unproductive. but if republicans want to know why it's been unproductive, they should take a look in the mirror. benjamin franklin once said, "well-done is better than well-said." close quote. "well-done is better and well-said." so it is time republicans stopped talking about how much they wanted to get things done and started working with us to actually get things done. the presiding officer: the republican leader. mr. mcconnell: yesterday dozens of republican senators came to the senate floor one after the other to register their complete frustration with the way democrats are running this place. never before -- never -- have a president and a majority party in the senate done so little to address challenges as great as the ones our nation faces right now. never. i mean, we've got a $16 trillion debt, and they haven't bothered to put together a budget in three years. they ha

calls for protest in iran and the gaza strip, and large protests expected in baghdad and iraq's second largest city basra, as well as amman, jordan. ian lee has been following the developments in cairo. ian, what's the scene like right now? >> reporter: well, right now christine, we still have battles going on between protesters and police. we're still seeing the tear gas used rubber bullets used, protesters responding with molotov cocktails and rocks. this battle has been going on since wednesday night. it's now friday, just about noon, so it's been a sustained battle. really no either side getting the upper hand on the other, but we're seeing injuries and more injuries on both sides as this battle continues. it is happening near the u.s. embassy on a road that goes from tahrir square to the u.s. embassy. right now the protesters are about roughly 80 to 100 yards from the embassy, but the police have been able to hold them off. the military's also building a huge concrete wall on the road leading to the embassy. this wall is about ten feet tall, and we've

and went to iraq. so president obamaad to put a plan in place and a timetable to get it done. so it may not be as fast as we woulall ke, t the ct the cost of this war, in terms of our human treasure, the most important part, our young people, the casualties to their lives and to their physical well-beingnd their mental -- it's all physical, mental or not. so, yeah, i do think that this is taking to us a place where we should really understand that war, as a resolution of conflict, is an obsolete idea. and we should take the debate to a bigger place, a bigger place. i'll never get over the fact that presideustooks into war on a false premise, that he knew was false, that his administration knew was false, for a different agenda, and look how long we stayed in iraq. >> whether or not it ends up becoming an issue in the presidential race, is this a matteror congress to decide, in terms of when we leave, befo the electorer esidt's call? >> well, it's a combination. because when we won in '06, one of the big issues was ending the war in iraq. and we went to see the president and we said, we'
by president bush in iraq and then afghanistan and that's part of what president obama has actually been trying to, you know, in addition to getting us out of the wars, undo some of that damage. that's not a conversation they want to have. i find it talk about the sabre rattling, noecons going into iran, if we did that, it would be a similar situation, american forces on the ground, american resources not spent at home. it could be morsi we have seen on television now or as we saw with american loss of life coming home. there's a responsible element to this as well. >> you say that. julian, all i hear from people like paul ryan and the other expert on foreign policy, sarah palin, is that this president's affect has been one of weakness, and yet we've seen multiple dictators fall, and certainly american relationships with other nations improve. i don't understand what they want him to do. invade? what do they want him to do? >> that's the curious question. i agree with karen's point, these things are very harmful to the national interest, particularly when attached. to your question, martin, cha

't plant an army in every country around our embassy. in iraq we have because there is a war zone. there still is a small army associated with the embassy. i think there are 17,000 people there in the green zone in iraq. i think that in a war zone, it's a little bit different. i don't want to second-guess the protection, but i do want to second-guess that our response should be very clear to libya and very clear to egypt that if we're going to have an embassy in the country, we need to be saved, and if we're going to spend money, we need to protect our embassy. lou: you believe that governor romney was too quick and too severe in his criticism of the obama administration as he turned a critical eye to the way in which the state department was apologizing to radical islam is at the very moment that they had stormed our embassy in cairo and were within very short order to be killing four americans, including the ambassador of libya? >> my response was very similar to governor romney's. that was to feel like it's not appropriate when the ambassador has been assassinated and your emba

to an eruption of deadly violence in iraq, 26 people were killed in more than 90 injured by a wave of bombings targeting security forces in shiite neighborhoods. officials blamed al qaeda in iraq which has been trying to undermine their fragile government. >>> and in spain tonight at least 12 people have been injured when riot police clashed with protesters rallying in steep cuts in government spending. the violence broke out when police at the times moved in to disperse the crowds and some responded by throwing rocks and bottles. >>> back in this country tonight there are troubling new questions this evening about airport security. we have learned this evening that twice in the last week agents with the transportation security administration, the tsa, allowed loaded guns to through airport checkpoints. here's abc's mark greenblatt now. >> reporter: in the latest black eye for tsa, a loaded .38 caliber gun like this went undetected by screeners. new orleans hornets' executive joshua richardson says he mistakenly flue with it from new orleans to newark. just one day earlier in orlando, they mis
: in 2007, the u.s. military recovered a trove of documents in iraq, basically the sort of rosetta stone of al qaeda in iraq. and when they looked at these documents and analyzed them, they found that 40% of the foreign fighters coming into iraq were coming from libya, which was kind of an unexpected thing to find. and so historically, libya has provided quite a lot of suicide attackers to al qaeda and the group that is sort of deemed to be behind this attack is probably one of these sort of splinter groups from al qaeda central. >> how strong is their presence there in libya, and who leads them? do we know? >> reporter: you know, i mean there is sort of umbrella group, according to the former libyan jihadist called ansar al sharia. i think a lot of this is relatively secretive. this is not obviously an organization that operates in a very overt manner. my guess is that we're talking about a few hundred people at most. it doesn't represent the tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of people who are taking up arms against gadhafi. they have -- as the reporter in libya indicated, been
the spokespersons, we're leaving iraq, we're leaving afghanistan, we're leaving the area, the people in the area are having to adjust and they believe the united states is weak and they are taking appropriate action. bill: also over the weekend congressman mike rogers, chairman of the house intelligence committee and former fbi agent echoed that sentiment. >> the countries of middle east believe there is a disengagement policy by the united states and that lack of leadership there or at least clarity on what our position is causing problems. i, if we all decide to rally around the video as the problem we're going to make a serious mistake and we're going to make i think diplomatic mistakes as we move forward if we think that is the only reason people are showing up at our embassy to conduct acts violence. bill: the romney campaign says the obama administration is failing to throughout that part of the world. heather: there is more trouble brewing between israel and iran as a nightmare scenario could be coming close to reality. prime minister benjamin netanyahu says the iran will be the on the br
worked in iraq where you want to rebuild a country. >> or build. >> well, build, actually. you can't rebuild a country that is in the second century right now. >> it's hard to talk about. it's hard for the candidates to talk about. and if anything can be read into the mistake or the complete just disregard for the story, it would be in the fact that this wasn't even mentioned in mitt romney's speech. afghanistan, are troops serving our way forward in terms of foreign policy because it's too hard to talk about. i don't understand how they could forget it. they can't forget a huge sector of what's going on in this country. >> why not? >> they avoided it. you know why? because it's hard. and they don't think people want to hear about it. >> do you know why they avoided it? for the same reason the media has avoided it. >> i agree with that. >> other than the "new york times" and a couple other outlets, the media have avoided it, the american people have avoided it. you bring it up and everybody we've talked to over the past couple of years want us out of there. >> republicans especiall
of mass destruction were never found in iraq. good his foreign policy centered on going into iraq and getting rid of those weapons of mass destruction was alive. his administration showed remarkable indifference to the plight of most americans. what happened in new orleans and katrina is a good example. mitt romney and the republicans would like to pretend the and ministration did not happen. taking a five trillion $10-year surplus bequeaths to it by the clinton administration and turning into a a giant new deficit and saying to wall street, do whatever you want. we are not going to look at you. he makes the case against mitt romney. that is one of the most important things. and with that kind of cynicism, the special interests to win everything. the only thing we can get our democracy back is if we understand we have got to be active, and it is not just paying taxes and serving on juries and showing up. we have got to be engaged, mobilize, energized. we have got to demand this work for us as ordinary people, as average working americans who need an economy working for us, not jus
